Extract from “Co-operatives at risk if gov’t pursues TPPA, says Angkasa”

The government should take the interests of co-operatives into consideration before agreeing to sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), the Malaysian National Co-operative Movement (Angkasa) has said.

According to Angkasa president Abdul Fatah Abdullah, this is because the TPPA agreement involves businesses, and if it puts the Bumiputeras at risk, the co-operatives will, in turn, be put at risk as well.

“Our co-operatives depend on the government’s protection and are kept moving by the public. We hope that the government will take the co-operative movement’s interests into account before agreeing to implement the TPPA,” he said when contacted by FMT today.
